Final Fantasy XV Will Take Around 50 Hours to Complete, Square Enix Targeting 30fps

The Uncovered Event for Final Fantasy XV is fast approaching and as the long wait for Final Fantasy XV appears to be coming to an end, the game’s director Hajime Tabata has been sharing more and more information regarding the game. Here are some key highlights from the interview.  You can watch the entire interview on this link (starting at 26:56).

 

-  Cactuars will make an appearance. They’re powerful opponents that will be able to dodge Shift Breaks.

-  Square Enix will have plenty of surprises for their event on March 31st, and to expect a trailer in Japanese as well.

-  The father of Final Fantasy in Hironobu Sakaguchi called out Tabata saying “Let me tell you my impression on the Final Fantasy XV demo.” While Tabata can’t say what they talked about, he mentions with a laugh that Sakaguchi had a whole lot to say.

-  A playable tech demo will be properly shown at the event.

-  As for the play time, at first Square Enix estimated that it would take about 40 hours to clear the main scenario, but this has since then been bumped up to 50 hours. They’re currently not at the final stages of balancing out the game, but making optimal balances. They say that the game has more volume than they thought it would.

-  As for the Airship, it has been decided from long ago on how they would introduce it into the game. It’s something that would have you say “this is the kind of Airship that should be in Final Fantasy XV.”

-  Maintaining a frame rate of 30fps is their objective. This has not been completely optimized as of yet, as there are times where it breaks 30. They will continue making adjustments until the last minute before the game goes gold. If they’re unable to fixate on the 30fps, they will do something different.

-  As for the game’s resolution, it’ll be revealed at the release event on March 31st.

-  As for a PS4 bundle version, Square Enix is working on making it happen

 

Do bear in mind that the 50 hour completion of the game DOES NOT include the sidequests, meaning it will probably take you at around 70+ hours to complete everything on the game.  It is a reasonable length for an RPG game, or rather an action RPG game.  Maybe a couple of those hours will be the emotional ending scenes that Tabata promised that will make the fans cry. Heh.

 

Final Fantasy XV is in development for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and is rumored to be released on September 30.  Only a few more days until we can hear from Square-Enix for the final release date of the game. Can't wait.

Smh, the game doesn't even look as pretty as MGSV and they have to "try" and nail 30fps?

Bro, this game will have much more fast action moments than mgsv, with like 3 other party members doing real time attacks as well in possibly a big group of enemies. They say it sometimes breaks the 30 fps, which is typical for many games under heavy load.

Hahah... Even the XV demo had more going on in it compared to the entirety of MGSV open world.

Man what a disgrace MGSV was, traded it in and never looked back.

So happy we now live in a day and age when a Final Fantasy game has to be very concerned with FPS because it's an ACTION GAME.

Yes, MGS5's world is empty compared to that of FF15 and the story wasn't really there compared to previous entries but let's see if FF15's review scores can compare.

Ben, we now live in a day and age where movements are real time vs choppy turn based moves in the 90s. Kingdom Hearts, the witcher, both rpg games where solid fps is important. Why can't you bash the "actioness" of those rpg games.

What this tells me is probably how complex this game is in terms of pushing the technology, rather than it being action. There are many rpg games now with real time attacks, but this game needing extra attention to me, means it's not just any other game. Then again, I've always been an optimist vs a pessimist on this game.

Heaven sakes, we knew this game was going to be action and real time since 2006.

Bullsh**.

I don't bash the action/RPGs that are The Witcher and Kingdom Hearts because they're ACTION/RPGS. In other words, they have always put action a little ahead of the role-playing, even though they still qualify as RPG.

That is not the trajectory FF has taken. No, it isn't. And no, FPS doesn't matter equally in all games, not even in all action games. You absolutely don't need the same FPS in The Witcher as you would in a shooter, for instance. We almost never even hear the initials "FPS" mentioned in ANY RPG ANYWHERE because it typically doesn't matter as much. Why? Because when you put role-playing first, as you would in a Dragon Age or even a Tales game, there's less emphasis on flashy action and animation.

The ONLY reason FFXV needed the "extra attention" you're calling it is because it's an action game, plain and simple. It needs solid FPS for the same reason DmC would need it. And that's not Final Fantasy, and it certainly isn't role-playing.

I think it's a shame that people are so lacking in the creative department that they can't imagine games being anything but real-time action if they want to be AAA titles.

I don't want to add another RPG to the list until after I clear off FO4 and Xenoblade X.

Finally finished off Witcher 3 last night. Finished the main story and quite a few side missions anyway.

I suppose I should say any big game of RPG-like length.
MGSV feels like an RPG to me too.
There was a time when pretty much only RPG's were 50 or so hours long. Seems these days most anything that's single player is now this massively sized beast.

Im looking forward to seeing a proper story trailer. Its interesting he brought up Sakaguchi because I remember reading last year Sakaguchi response to the demo and asking about FF fans who prefer the classic game play. This event will indeed be interesting.

My reaction is with everyone else.

WTF. HOW IS IT 'TARGETING' 30FPS? Do we not have standards below standards anymore? What year is this.

Who cares about 30 or 60 fps.

Tbh its quite stupid to argue or worry about that. There are more important things to worry about in games like is it fun? Does it even have a stable fps?

It just needs 30fps because it's a Square Enix JRPG sayword. But going under stable 30 is never FUN.

It's not stupid to worry or argue about it. It just shouldn't be fluctuating under 30. We need to be moving forward. A studio like SE needs to be upholding a standard for everyone to achieve and break.

Look at Star Ocean, if it didn't have a PS3 version to look after it would be 100% stable 60fps. Look how much crap is going on in the screen.

Make no mistake I'm getting this Day 1 without question and am excited. But they can't get away with below average numbers for a global game factor.

Just as long as games can hit at least 720p and at least 30fps we are cool. Would like full hd and 60fps, but w/e. Anything over that btw is almost unnoticeable unless you have a big ass tv and maybe super human eyes.

In other news, will FF15 have new game plus?
